Mrs. Binkley's Weekly Memo To Parents - 12/09/18

Hello Harding Parents;

We have been consistently growing in all areas of academics and our students are so proud of their achievements! It’s showing in the classroom and on the playground!  I can’t walk anywhere on campus when I am not stopped by a student telling me how many words that they have read and how they are going to make their goal.  We are all so proud of their passion and are in awe in how they are growing beyond even our expectations!

At our last ELAC meeting, we went over the Reclassification Criteria, reviewed what we are doing at HUPS to support our students and then took a tour our classrooms to see the learning in process.  Our ELAC tem recommended that we do this once a month and so we will!  The next “Reclassification and Classroom Tours” will be on January 15th at 8:45 - 9:45.  Please join us!
